We believe in marriage! We believe that it can be one of the most wonderful aspects of life, but we also know that it presents many challenges, so we run two separate marriage courses — one for people who are engaged to be married, the other for those who are already married:
Who is the Marriage Preparation Course for?
The Marriage Preparation Course is designed for couples considering marriage and wishing to build a strong and lasting relationship. While based on Christian principles, it is relevant and helpful for any couple with or without a Christian faith or church background. The course begins with a meal, followed by a talk and an opportunity for discussion. Privacy is respected, there is no group discussion or group work, and no requirement to disclose anything about their relationship, but couples can discuss issues with a married 'support couple' if they wish.
What does the Marriage Preparation Course cover?
Topics covered include:
Keeping love alive
